    Simple, quick and easy! Made a couple of changes based on what was on hand. Used low sodium soy sauce instead of soy sauce and used 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar instead of regular white wine. Also added some fresh grated ginger. Would definitely reduce the amount of olive oil next time as other reviewers suggested. Great flavor!
